Holiday Gift Guide 2009

by Colleen Clark and Nicola McCormack

For Architecture Buffs

Any New York–bound traveler with an edifice complex will enjoy City Architecture Walks: New York; the guidebook suggests 25 routes for discovering both Gotham's landmark buildings and its hidden gems. There's also a Paris edition. Suiting more iconoclastic tastes, 10x10_3 gives a comprehensive view of 100 rising stars in architecture, while Yabu Pushelberg features lush views of the hotels, restaurants, and residential interiors created by the eponymous Toronto–New York design firm. Perfect for those whose obsession with design and structure influences their personal style, Timex's iconic 1940s military watch has been relaunched in conjunction with J.Crew. Moscot's Lemtosh sunglasses say intellectual artiste with a dash of Johnny Depp.
